Shootout with CPL-holder ends with deceased suspect (VIDEO)

Investigators say the concealed carry permit holder who opened fire on a robbery suspect Saturday night at a gas station in Highland Park, Michigan, acted in self defense, according to local reports.

Police say the CPL-holder and another man were sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot of the Sunoco around midnight when a second vehicle occupied by a single person pulled up beside them. As the three talked, two masked men ran through a field toward the parking lot and fired at the two vehicles.

The CPL-holder drew his weapon and returned fire, striking one of the suspects, who died as a result of his injuries. The second suspect fled from the scene and remains at large.

A neighbor who witnessed part of the shooting told reporters he saw a vehicle drop off the suspects, then turn around and pick them after the shooting. Police say images of the vehicle were captured by surveillance video in the area.
